Line begins to form early for NYPD officer's wake
NEW YORK (AP) Uniformed police officers from across the country are among those lining up early for the wake of a second New York City police officer killed in an ambush shooting.
The wake Saturday for Officer Wenjian Liu (WEHN'-jihn loo) comes a week after the funeral of his police partner, Rafael Ramos. They were shot in their cruiser two weeks ago by a man who then killed himself.
Among those attending Saturday's wake in Brooklyn were about 20 officers from the Los Angeles Police Department. Los Angeles Officer Hannu Tarjamo (tah-RAY'-moh) called the killings an "act of savagery that should be condemned by society."
Before the wake began, some officers sought refuge from a light snow and low temperatures in a church across the street from the funeral home.
